Mentoring Library Employees: A Beginner’s Guide Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, August 26, 2020, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

If you ask any successful person what helped them in their career, they are likely to say it wasn’t a what, but a who. Mentors coach us, support us, and encourage us in all we do. The only problem is there aren’t enough of them to go around. Professionals often feel they are just too busy, and that while mentoring is important, there simply aren't enough hours in the day.

In this workshop, Catherine Hakala-Ausperk shows you how you can be a mentor and how you can make sure it fits into your schedule, even if you've only got a few minutes a week. During her career, Hakala-Ausperk has held almost every position in a public library and now works as a management and leadership consultant. Using her experience as both a mentor and a mentee, she will guide you to become the best mentor you can be.

After participating in this workshop, you will

  • Recognize and appreciate the value of the mentors
  • Commit to find ways to mentor others
  • Develop a plan to start mentoring today
  • Pledge to helping build mentoring skills and opportunities for others
